Once again, we're back with new activities to do at home, to help you out right now. Although we have already started going out in a moderate way, we still have to stay at home most of the time. And not everything will be teleworking, teaching our children, or watching series and movies... It is also good to take some time just to take care of yourself or to learn something new. Whatever we bring you today, you're going to love it.
Take care of your feet
Lola Mari, Park Spa Mountain Wellness Club Manager, explains how to easily perform a foot moisturizing treatment at home. Like the rest of the body, feet also need pampering and care. This summer, no sandal would resist.
Ingredients for this treatment, which of course you will find in our kitchen pantry:
2 small spoons of salt 🧂, the juice of half a lemon, 🍋2 spoons of vegetable oil, 2 spoons of honey 🍯 or moisturizer 🧴, film paper, socks 🧦 and a bowl of hot water 💦
First, mix the salt, lemon and honey and apply this preparation to your feet. Massage well emphasizing the heels, which are usually the driest part. Then place your feet in a bucket or bowl of hot water for 5 minutes. Next, run a file through the corns and heels. When you're done, apply a generous layer of honey or moisturizer and wrap your feet in film, put on your socks and leave for 20 minutes. In the meantime, pour yourself a refreshing drink and put on some music to relax you. After this time remove the product by massaging if you have used moisturizer or with a damp towel if you have used honey.
With this beauty ritual your feet will be super soft.
Learning about wines
For further knowledge about the world of wine, we count on our supplier and sommelier Jean-Louis Le Guil, from Classic Vins. Today, he explains to us what factors determine the colour of a wine.
The first important element to take into account is the climate of the area where the grapes are grown. If it is warm, the colour will be more intense, however, if it comes from a cold territory it will be much paler.
The time of aging and whether it is in the barrel or in the bottle also has an influence. So does the variety of the grape. To give an example, the variety "Pinot Noir" produces paler wines with less colour because the skin of the grape is very thin. But the "Cabernet Shauvignon" will give us more intense and darker wines, thanks to the fact that they have a much thicker skin.
